The party had earlier on Wednesday announced the expulsion of 84 members of the party who belong to Aregbesola’s camp.

He said the disciplinary measure came in response to the allegations of misconduct bordering on factionalization of the party and creating a parallel party organ.

Lawal said, “Following complaints of anti-party activities, the State Executive Committee of the Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) constituted a disciplinary committee to investigate the allegations against some of its members.

“The disciplinary committee undertook a thorough and impartial review of the allegations and the findings were carefully deliberated upon by the State Executive Committee.

“After a comprehensive assessment of the evidence and consideration of the committee’s recommendations, the State Executive Committee has taken the difficult yet necessary step.”
